Scouting Report on Jordan Allen

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 08/25/2009
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Very thick, long-limbed athlete that has the frame that may allow him to grow into a defensive tackle.
Needs Improvement: Must improve his speed coming off the edge in order to become a more effective pass rusher.
Most Impressive: Does an excellent job using his long arms to keep offensive linemen from getting to his body. Allen also does a nice job of diagnosing plays and reacting.
Conclusion: Most likely a redshirt candidate as he learns the game and improves his speed and strength. Allen should excel as a run-stopping defensive end that will control offensive linemen and string plays out. Don't be surprised if he becomes a monster at defensive tackle.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
